Chocolate and peanut butter – is there a better pair? We love this combination! This recipe uses ingredients such as honey, vanilla extract and peanut butter protein powder. #YUM. Next time you’re wondering what is a good high protein snack, then this might be the one for you!
What we love about this recipe is that it needs just six ingredients, some of which you may already have in your kitchen!
Here’s how to make it:
Gather your ingredients: two tablespoons of peanut butter, two tablespoons of honey, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, half a cup of peanut butter protein powder, two tablespoons of cacao or cocoa, and one pinch of salt.
Next, place the peanut butter, vanilla, honey, and salt into a bowl and mix to combine. Then, add the protein powder and cacao or cocoa to the bowl and mix. Use your hands to work the mixture until it resembles a cookie dough consistency. Next, shape 1 tablespoon of the mixture into a ball and continue to do this until the mixture is finished. Place it in the fridge to set for 30 minutes. All that’s left is to enjoy!
